Well here goes my 2 cents
I have been working on a load for my Rem 7mm for 6 months I am reloading new 7mm Remington brass CCI Magnum primers with H1000, Berger 168 vld hunting in a 24 Inch barreled rifle......
Was at the range in Logan Mt. 4/28/2013 9am.
The 7 mm Load that I will be using is 69 grains H1000 with .30 jump averaging 2899 fps
this load seems to be the best one for my gun for good speed and great accuracy touching holes @ 200 yards and less than 1/2 5 shot group.
I did get a 3025 fps average load with 71.5 grains .30 jump but this load is all over the place about 2.5 inch groups @ 200yards. also ran 71,70.5,70,69.5. all not as accurate as 69.
I have ran all these loads with .20 .30 .40 thousandths jump and the .30 was the best in speed and accuracy.
69 at .30 2899fps 69 at .20 2866 avg. differences just in the jump. this surprised me a little also surprising was hot loads 70.5 71 and 71.5 @ 200 were low about 2 to 2.5inches avg and the 69 is about 1/4 inch high.
Remember all guns shoot different!! If I were you I would do the same no matter how long it takes...
5X20X50 zeroed @200yds 16 clicks to nail the gong ever shot @430yards cant wait to get the turrets made for this load and gun.
